James Henderson put Mate Nagy to the test for his whole stack, heads up on the turn with the board already lying 5d Td As Th.
The pot was in the region of 700,000 chips, and Henderson and Nagy had about 500,000 apiece. Henderson led out for his full half million and Nagy took minutes to make a decision. The table clearly understood and quietly let the man focus. Finally, he took the plunge for his tournament life, calling with Ac Qc. Snap: Henderson held Ah Qd. Both players exhaled audibly.
“Tough call,” said Nagy.
